Scott Brown Claims Kagan Is Pro-Military


Republican U.S. senator Scott Brown says he is convinced Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan supports the military event though, while she was dean of Harvard Law School, military recruiters were barred from the school's placement office, according to the Associated Press. Brown met privately with Kagan and says he believes that her judicial philosophy will not pose a threat Americans serving in the armed forces.

Recruitment was restricted because of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, as Harvard does not allow employers on campus if they violate the university's nondiscrimination code. The restriction was in place under Kagan's predecessor as well. The military was still able to recruit through a campus veterans organization, and Kagan, although highly critical of "don't ask, don't tell," eventually agreed to allow the military to use the placement office after the school was threatened with losing federal funding.
